    These are so pretty. I attempted to cook a Nutella Swirl Pound Cake but it was a flop. The Nutella was too heavy to swirl like it was supposed to. But, I think using it in the frosting instead is the answer. I would love to invite you to share your recipe on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

    these would be a huge hit in our house; especially considering Nutella is pretty much viewed as its own food group around here. Thx for sharing :)

    Hi

    I see the cake recipe calls for 1-3/4 CUP Flour. Does that mean it's 1 plus a 3/4 cup flour?

  34. 34

    I made these tonight. They are fabulous! Thank you. Should I refrigerate them (because of the heavy cream in frosting)?

  35. 35

    how many servings does this recipe make?

  36. 36

    Hi,
    I want to make your recipe.. but what amount is for the nutella in the recipe? In which step do I add the nutella? Doesn’t say…

    Thanks

    Hello Katherine, please excuse my ignorance, how much is a stick of butter?
